In the last stage of a home theater build for a friend we ran into a problem where we needed to get remote signals to a cabinet, but found most of the reviews of Logitech RF products lacking. With the mindset that whatever I setup has to work no matter what, I started searching for affordable, but still reliable alternatives. In steps the Niles remote repeater, which uses a wired receiver to send commands back to equipment hidden away. I already had unused CAT6 going from the media cabinet to the TV, so everything was pre-wired.

Setup is as simple as taking it out of the box, plugging in AC and the IR senders, and connecting four wires to the correctly labeled spots on an adapter plug. After that it just works. No learning, no complicated software, no special modes... it just works.

The only item I think could be useful is a way to disable the blue blinking LED on the receiver. It blinks each time IR is picked up. Depending on your client, some may be adverse to this since it needs to be located very close to a TV, and may distract or annoy you. Its very useful to know if it is working though, since it blinks when it "sees" IR, so you know if the thing is picking it up or not. When in standby or not passing along IR is has no LED's on or anything, so it blends into the background. My installation paired this up with a Samsung UN55D8000 HDTV, which if you are familiar with this model, has a small tab on the bottom with the Samsung name printed on it. The receiver stuck perfectly in this spot and if you weren't looking for it you would never notice it.

When I recently had U-verse installed, I learned that 1) it uses an apparently new or uncommon IR protocol, and 2) plasma TVs put out a lot of interference. Like many u-verse users, my remote control worked inconsistently at best. Add to that the fact that all my A/V components sit hidden away on the other side of the wall, so I was using an IR Replicator which wasn't compatible with this new protocol, and was sending interference from the TV through to the other side of the wall. It was beyond frustrating to have to hit the remote control buttons several times (which becomes exponential frustration with a DVR when u need to go back from FF to Play!).

I was pointed toward the Niles Audio products on the AT&T forums, and even though the remote anywhere kit was a bit pricey, it was well worth it. Installation was actually fairly easy (I already had all my other wires running through the wall behind the TV that I ran the cat-5 for the IR Receiver through), and although it did add a few more wires to my overall setup, every component, from my a/v receiver, Blu-Ray player, AppleTV work flawlessly and quickly. Much better than before with the basic IR extender I was using.

I couldn't be happier, and would recommend this to anyone needing a similar solution.

I have owned, and tried to use, three different home theater remotes in the last six years. I'll begin with the Niles remote:

Niles RCA-HT2 (currently controlling my home theater)

Pros:

1. It works.
2. Easy to set up.
3. Simple. I connected: an AVR, DVD, Cable Box, Apple TV. The cable box didn't respond. In Niles 'tips from the pros' "some IR sensor windows are susceptible to being over-driven, simply relocate the (IR) flasher to the side of the sensor window." I moved the flasher to the edge of the cable box IR sensor window and it works great. Alternatively, IR blocker filter tabs are included and can be used.

Cons:

1. No single controlled; rather each device's remote is used.
2. No tech support but great online documentation. But Niles admits it has no tech support. See Logitech later.

Universal MX-810

Pro:

1. Integrated single remote controller.
2. Worked well for five years and then froze.

Cons:

1. Must be programmed by technicians using proprietary software.
2. Small window at top of controller.
3. Controller froze and would not reset. The local company that programmed it went out of business.

Logitech Harmony 1100

Pros:

1. The RF Wireless Extender worked well.

Cons:

1. Logitech does not stand behind its product.
2. No technical support.
3. Poor construction. I performed an autopsy on the 1100 and the USB port had a latent manufacturing defect.
4. The Harmony 1100 NEVER WORKED!

BUYER BEWARE! Avoid the Harmony!

I've had difficulty getting any one product to control all of my devices however, this one does it all. It is currently running an Epson 5030 projector, Samsung blu-ray player, Apple TV, and a DirecTV DVR. For the first time all is working the way it was intended. Straight forward setup with easy to understand directions. The only thing you may need is a some small wire nuts if you need to use the supplied cable to extend the sensor across the room as I did. The 50' of supplied cable was more than enough length to go from the back corner of our movie room to the front where the screen is located. I added a 25' "headset" extension cable to one of the flashers and was able to reach the projector as well.
